These retro cameras were made using the wonderful For Mother and For Father papers. A hidden back box on the camera opens to hold photos. I enjoy the versatility that the different papers offer as both feminine and masculine vintage designs are available. Handmade projects made with Pion Design are sure to be treasured.
Have a wonderful day crafting with the charming papers of Pion Design!

Tara, your creations are always truly works of art. And I am always waiting to see what you have created next. The Pion Design papers look like they were made for your projects. Just stunning 🙂
Hello, I always look at your wonderful blog pictures, and realy enjoy them. I have also make a few. However I would love to make the camera featured today, but I don’t think I could work it out.
Is it possible to receive the instructions please?
Hi Brenda! I have posted instructions on how to make the camera on my blog:
Thank you, thank you all for the kind comments!
Wow Tara! What fantastic works of art! Thanks for the inspiration!
WOW!!! this is just AMAZING!!!!!!!!
The pink camera is absolutely stunning that paper is amazing. I would love to see how the bellows were made for them so would like to know if there is a tutorial for them. TFS
Im being a bit doff I cant seem to work out the size of the bellows. I downloaded the cutting file but I see it comes in WPC format will that work with my MTC? Or if you can give me the manual measurements please. The bellow goes from wide to narrow what is the width at the wide end and what is the width at the narrow end and how long is the full length of the bellow the full 12inches of the paper?
Thank you for your assistance and you won’t believe how happy I was to find this tutorial thank you for sharing.
Hi Adele, There are ways to convert WPC to other file formats, so you might try an internet search to see if there is a way to convert to the particular file format you need. In the mean time, each of the four bellow pieces measure 8 1/4″ length. The widest width at one end is 3 1/2″ and this tapers/narrows down to 2″ at the other end. There are 22 score lines that are 3/8″ apart along the length of each bellow piece. The 2 long score lines opposite the 22 score lines, are 5/16″ in from the edge of the paper on each side. I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any additional questions! Tara
